Verdict

Proximo finished one place and almost five lengths ahead of BILLESLEY ROAD over 1m6f at Warwick in November but the latter was very green that day. With an extra 3f to cover and on an easier surface, Philip Hobbs' well-bred four-year-old is fancied to reverse that form and open his account today. Typhon De Guye has claims on his second at Towcester but Eight Keys' form looks modest and Sing Sing Sing hasn't been seen since finishing runner-up in a five-runner race at Towcester in February last year. Unex Degas, who cost 92,000gns as a yearling, may prove the pick of the newcomers ahead of the filly Umadachar.
